About this title


Learn what the pros know. Find out how to best handle fresh cut flowers to increase their life span, how to rejuvenate your old silk flowers and how to dry or preserve your garden treasures. This book covers everything from making wreaths, arrangements, garlands, and topiaries to preparing containers, wiring flowers, using floral foam and pressing flowers.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Some flowers benefit from total immersion in cool water, if they have been left out of water for a few hours. They drink the moisture through their cell walls and regain their composure. Roses, peonies, lilies, wilted violets, wild flowers and especially tropical flowers rebound stronger than ever with a tepid bath before being placed in a storage container for hydration in a preservative solution.

Tulips that have curled up can be straightened by carefully placing them upright in a tall, straight vase and adding a couple of pennies to the water.

Taking the time to trim off dying plant material and the leaves beneath the water line, cutting the stems under water, and allowing the flowers to hydrate in a preservative solution before arranging them in a vase, will add to the life and beauty of your arrangement.
